See You at ALA Midwinter


I’m headed off to the ALA Midwinter Meeting. This time around I’m a member of the Caldecott committee, and I can’t wait to get down to business. See you bright and early Monday morning for the announcement of the Caldecott, Newbery, and the rest of the Youth Media Awards.

Also, if you have any socks I can borrow, that would be appreciated #packinglight.

    That tote wouldn’t accommodate my essentials ( gear & makeup), much less the shoes. Well done.

  2. Have so much fun on the Caldecott Committee, Travis! I’m really looking forward to finding out your choices! (Won’t be there this year, though…. But envious of those who are.)
